ok - so - i guess i will start off this thread
in the last couple of weeks i have bought 2 albums. . .
lately ive been really getting into my chilled acoustic music and when i was looking through the new NINJA TUNE releases and sampling a few tracks i came across an artist called ‘FINK’
its unlike the ninja tune label to release and acoustic artist so i was intregued to hear and i have been pleasantly suprised. “pretty little thing’ was the track i heard (its also the first track on the album) and i love it. The beats are definately hip hop orientated, but the drums are live and they are not full on at all. The general tune is funky and soulfull with an amazing organ sounds coming in and out of the track and a couple of really nice pads used to perfection. The other stand out tracks for me are ‘Buscuits for breakfast’ (the title for the album) and ‘sorry im late’. Buscuits for breakfast Is a bit darker and more ambient than pretty little thing, and the chours is dreamy! Sorry im late is really dark “i need a drink, who doesnt need a drink these days” are the opening vocals - and they set the tone for the song. its just vocals and guitar and its amazing -
overall id say it is a good all round album with some stand out tracks. its a mixture of acoustic styles but is really well produced and the songs are at some points genius.
the other cd i got is “the only thing i ever wanted” by a band called Psapp! Its hard to describe really. the cd came as a double pack, cd 2 is an instrumental whilst cd1 features the bands female vocalist. The music is often fairytale-esq with each song being exceptionally stuctured. I coulsnt really put the music into a specific catagory of genre, its definatlly chilled out, but its quite up tempo and happy and i love the plinky plonky piano riffs.
check em out and start posting some reccomendations
